Champ Bailey was a consensus pick for ESPN's all defensive Decade team. probably the only Bronco that will be on either offense or defense. He is a special player!

Kind of shocked Dawkins didn't make it over Troy... after all... Troy hasn't been playing 10 years... not even close. Hell even Lynch was a better choice imo for an ALL-DECADE team.

Now I'd give Troy the nod without a single doubt if he keeps this up for the next 5 years.

i know i may come off sounding like a homer, but Al Wilson was one of the best LBs of the past decade, and was better than the overrated Urlacher.

He showed a lot of that by getting the Pro-Bowl 5 times in 8 played season without always having insane stats.

A bit of a homer

I would definitely take Dawkins over Troy for the last 10 years. Dawkins in his prime did everything. Lynch would be a solid choice too, he was a player on the field, a lockerroom presence and one of the top players off the field.

I would have Ty Law over Troy Vincent at CB and I wouldn't have Jenkins at DT. I would have Rod Coleman over Jenkins at DT. Jenkins is solid, but Coleman was dominant for several years like no other DT not named Sapp was.

Jenkins is a NT. Needed to allow Sapp excel in his UT spot. Rod Coleman is also an UT.

factor in basically a swinging door for a DL and what he was for this team is even more amazing. also i find it interesting that basically once he was gone this defense went straight to hell.

Either Richard Seymour or Mike Vrabel should have been on this list imo. Neither had huge stats but both were anchors on opportunistic, timely, championship defenses
